    Summary

    Dee is caught halfway between sleep and waking, sweating through her sheets in the thick June heat, when her bedroom window creaks open. There’s the sound of a muffled curse, and then a person tumbles inelegantly to the floor, collapsing into a heap. Adrenaline courses through her, jolting her awake.

    “What the fuck?” Dee shrieks, scrambling to turn on the light on her bedside table. Fear sits hot in her throat until she finds the switch and the light casts Mac McDonald into relief, scowling and rubbing at a fresh scrape on his elbow, looking a little bleary around the edges as he pulls himself up.

    Mac glances up and rolls his eyes at the way she has her sheets yanked up to her chest, covering her sports bra and naked torso. “You wish, bitch,” he says, and Dee feels a tangled mixture of relief and irritation knot in her chest.

    or.

    the gang, in pairs, the summer after high school.

    Summary

    In the 90s and early 00s, they were distant neighbors on a long, dirt road out in the middle of vaguely Georgia farmland. Ian and Mickey: two poor, closeted Southern kids with similar financial situations but very different families, harboring secret crushes that felt illegal and that manifested themselves as sharp words, punches, and self-loathing.

    In 2021, Ian, a high school teacher in need of a fresh start, returns to his childhood home after nearly 20 years to find himself once more sharing a lonely dirt road with Mickey, the boy he once knew and the man he's desperate to get to know.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    my brain is all mush from being depressed as hell these few days to actually write anything substantial about anything but well. i’m really enjoying this one so far. i like aleks a lot and i’m glad mickey has a friend in this one. i know it might be a little out of character but he deserves it. I am a sucker for small town stories that’s just who i am. hoping for more updates. listen to illionis by sufjan stevens while reading this. or seven swans by sufjan as well. makes the experience a lot nicer :)

    Summary

    a collection of short ficlets about ian and mickey, originally posted to tumblr

    - - -

    ch. 13: As they stand outside the Alibi, Ian shrinking into his coat like a turtle retreating into its shell, Mickey feels himself waver. Feels his resolve crumble on the spot, because — fuck. Ian looks exposed, vulnerable, heartbroken. That was never the plan. (OR an 11x12 anniversary party fix-it)

    ch. 14: It's been three days of this, and he just wants to be there. But Ian had curled away from his touch for the first time in a long time, so he left. Retreated out to the living room, found their coziest blanket, and grabbed his sketchbook. (OR Ian's low, and Mickey keeps his hands busy.)

    ch. 15: Beautiful, Ian had called him, in the heat of their mingled breath. His hands had moved along soft, smooth skin, and he’d called him beautiful. But maybe it was the wrong word to use. The wrong time. The wrong day. (OR some body image hurt/comfort)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    ch. 35

    writing a bookmark note and still managing to not take a jab at how bad shameless writing got in the last few seasons is a feat i don’t think i’ll ever be able to accomplish. it’s common place now to just read these fics with awesome writing and interesting characters and lowkey mourn for what could’ve been if the writers got it together for five seconds and made way for more interesting heartfelt plots instead of whatever the hell they went for in seasons 5 through 11.

    not much to say other than i’m really enjoying this so far! don’t usually like short chapters but i really like how this fic is paced so no complaints! i find it fascinating that i can still find good long shameless fanfics after all the 200k worded fics i’ve read already. so grateful we have fic writers doing literal god’s work when it comes to filling in the blanks for gallavich lol btw i normally cringe when writers try to fit in lines from the show in the story but here it’s done very well! absolutely love etch and the use of references here! yev is a delight as he usually is in fic. if i could i would put shameless writers in jail for never giving us dad mickey. i hate them!!!!!!! but this is what fic is for right. lol. trying to take my time with this one but i’ve read 35 chapters in like two days so we’ll see about that 🙇♂️
